Six 4H middle school students came to the Beelog area of Burnsville on July 14 to work on a veterans Hero Quilt. They were assisted by two 4H leaders and three Mountain Piecemakers Guild members. The quilt will be longarm machine quilted and completed with a label of appreciation with the veteran’s name. The veteran’s quilt will be presented to a veteran in either Yancey, Mitchell, or Madison counties in the near future. The 4H’ers gained sewing knowledge and had lots of fun in their four hours as well as giving back to their community.
